    This thing is a bit newer, but interesting nonetheless...

    Sar1n,

    It's still a no go for me to give you any rep right now. I guess I'll just go out a rep some random posters.

    Cheers

    Don't worry about that. I'm not concerned about the rep, but about the game itself...and besides, I think all the regulars here owe each other so much rep by now (and I'm probably the worst offender in that case) that it's futile trying to set it right...

    Rep given on your behalf - I have to spread it as well .

    It sort of looks like the Soviet PTRD 41 anti tank rifle. If it not that, then it is probably some other anti-tank rifle.

    Close, but not very close.

    Yes, the pictures of the PTRD 41 I saw didn't look exactly like the picture, but I noticed that some of the PTRD 41 look different from others and some more closely resembled your photo. I thought it might be variant of the PTRD 41 I hadn't seen.

    It does look more like the German Granatbuchse GrB-39 Antitank Rifle,. .

    That's because it is GrB 39.

    GrB 39 is an interesting case of repurposing obsolete weapons. Early in war, standard German infantry anti-tank weapon was PzB 39 anti-tank rifle. However as war progressed, anti-tank rifles became obsolete. So all remaining PzB 39 were modified, starting in 1942, by cutting down the barrel, attaching a grenade launching cup and adding a few other modifications, creating a grenade launcher, the GrB 39.

    Your turn.

    Can you chose for me? I can't think of anything.

    Found it. It's some obscure german prototype aircraft. The Akaflieg Stuttgart FS-28 Avispa.

    Are you asking about the flashlight or the gun?
    The gun looks like a Sig Sauer P226, but what appears to be a custom color.
    The flashlight is obviously TLR-1 HL.

    Is it just me or does the flashlight not match the color? I really don't like the color, it looks like a toy.

    Edit: I looked up Sig Sauer P226 beige, thinking that it was a specific model. But it turns out it is the "Legion Grey". For some reason the "Legion Grey" also comes in different colors. I thought maybe the Legion was one used by the Navy Seals or some part of the army but it seems like Legion is just a commercial model. Not really sure what the difference is other than minor specs.

    You are quite right Oda. It is a Sig 226. It is one hell of a gun. And you don't mind the color so much when you spend $200 less cause the guy you bought it from didn't like the trigger pull. Neither did I but for $50 and a trip to the gunsmith I solved that.
    You go.

    It wasn't too hard when I realized that I've seen a lot of Sig Sauers usually used by cops. Though minor details really threw me off, the color being one and that Lambda type of symbol being another.

    I got an Italian vibe from it, and turned out my instincts were spot on.

    SPA-Viberti AS.42. Italian desert reconnaissance car developed from AB 41 armoured car.

    Somehow, everyone forgot about this. Okay....since I'm sure I'm right-the image is just flipped image from wikipedia-I'll post the next.

    It's easy, so....no hints, and I want the specific model name.

    is it the B17 XB-38 prototype? Those enginges.look to be water cooled ones instead of air cooled, and plane looks like a prototype craft

    Yep. XB-38, a single B-17E converted to use Allison V-1710 engines. Not a success.

    Can't rep you right now...but it's still your turn.
